How much do you know about your roommate? Do you know what kind of person he is when he stands in front of you? “Lame Ducks," a psycho thriller written and directed by Anthony Fusco, addresses this conundrum in a dark contemporary drama. The piece will presented for its world premiere by Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival September 4 to 12, 2019.

Kyle is an emotionally distressed ex-wall street stockbroker who lives alone in the East Village. He is suffering a broken heart from a relationship with his girlfriend, Tina. He posts an online announcement looking for a roommate. It's answered by Timmy, a sketch artist who is new in town and curious about everything in the neighborhood. They are initially compatible, but then dark secrets begin leaking out. The play has nine parts, played by a cast of four men and one woman.
